Both meth- Accepted 15 April 2016 ods have been applied to multiple phylogenomic datasets, and in many cases the authors considered their Available online 19 April 2016 trees inferred from the OV- and TIGER-delimited sub-matrices to be better estimates of the phylogeny than their trees based on all characters. In this study we use four sets of simulations and an empirical Keywords: phylogenomic example to demonstrate that both methods share a systematic bias against characters Character subsampling with more symmetric distributions of character states, against characters with greater observed
